James Randi, Judy Wood and
the 9-11 CTs
Hey Big Bart!
The page, once again, was rocking big time today. I liked the
comment you posted from the guy
praising both your page and your radio shows. Lots of
similarities to what I've said and I'm sure what
so many others have mentioned to you. You have a unique style of
commenting that is quite appealing.
I think it has to do with honesty. Folks can punch through your
prose and know that they're getting
the real McCoy. Even if there are disagreements here and
there. I always respect a man who's honest.
Wish I was flush, Big Bart, instead of struggling to find two nickels
to rub together. We writers do starve.
If I had it, though, I'd float some serious cash your way.
Well, glad James Randi got mentioned on your site today! You
probably remember him being on
Johnny Carson - more than 50 times if I remember. Carson liked
Randi quite a lot, not the least reason
of which Carson dabbled in magic show fare and conjuring.
You'd like this, Big Bart: Randi was
able to halt the ripoff spun by Peter Popoff, the televangelist,
by proving he had a radio transmitter feeding him "hidden" information
about his audience.
Which Popoff "miraculously" divined. Shut him down - for
awhile. But folks forget and I think
Popoff is back in business. They never learn.
If you ever get a chance to see the
1993 PBS NOVA episode called: Secrets of the Psychics, it's all
about Randi and his work. It's excellent, and being a skeptical
sort myself, drew me to his JREF
organization when he formed it in 1996. And yes - he does have
what we JREFers call the "MDC"
- the Million Dollar Challenge, for absolutely proving a psychic
So far - unclaimed.
That poster you thoughfully highlighted, concerning his grandstanding
for Dr. Judy Wood.
Oh my, Bart. Oh my my my. We know that all things are a
matter of degree up and down the line in life.
Conspiracy theorists on 9-11 come in all stripes, flavors, modes, what
have you. Yet the preposterousness
of what Wood claims - that the Twin Towers and Building 7 were felled
by a Directed Energy Weapon?
Apparently, an orbiting particle beam
weapon. Which (and I researched this) would have to be the size
of an earthbound electricity generating power plant! I remember
seeing a video of her, Bart; she was
actually being interviewed by another 9-11 CT, kind of a slick
PR-type. It was painful to watch.
Even for me, obviously in the non-CT camp. It was just
embarrassing, she looked so pitifully foolish.
Like I said - you get them all in the CT world. Like the
diversity within religious organizations.
What JREF has done is establish a place where the CTs can try their
luck. That particular subforum still,
I believe, garners the most attention of all the activity there.
You almost have pity on the conspiracy
theorists - especially the new ones - because you know the paces
through which they will soon be put.
It can become like the Marianas Turkey Shoot of WW2, at times.
Anyway thanks again Big Man for the great page, site, and radio shows,
and spare no downward force with The Hammer!
thanks for that.
